Super Green Quinoa Salad with Fresh Basil and Pistachios

super-green-quinoa-salad-2

What more can you ask from me than the recipes for one of my favorite Quinoa salads?

This takes just 15 minutes to put together and will serve 2 very hungry people.

Ingredients:

3 large leaves of lacinato kale, ribs removed + shredded thinly
1 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 avocado, cubed
1 packed cup spring greens or sprouts {I used miner’s lettuce}
1/4 cup shelled + lightly chopped pistachios
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
generous pinch of black pepper
In a large bowl toss together the shredded kale, basil, olive oil, lemon juice and salt + pepper. Massage together for about 3-5 minutes.

Then add in the cooked quinoa, avocado, greens and pistachios; toss together gently and serve.

  1. I see your sgq and raise it a couscous with almond/olive oil/garlic/orange zest – well, actually, my wife does, but one flesh and all that…

    Foolish, Quin, to disclose it so easily. Don’t you know that America’s enemies would have done anything to obtain that recipe. I surprised at you.

    “I’m” rather.
